Limoncello is an Italian liqueur made with lemon peels, alcohol, sugar, and patience. If you want to put your leftover naked lemons to use, make a double batch of this recipe and then use the fruit and any leftover alcohol to make hard lemonade (or regular lemonade)! This is a set-it-and-forget-it recipe with a quick prep

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

One of my favorite drinks (next to rum and Coke or Jägermeister and Dr. Pepper) is hard lemonade. I’ve been drinking MIke’s since I was in college. I’d grab a bottle and take it outside with me whenever I had to work on my bike. Now that I’m older and I have more to do

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and

My friends and I got together one day, back in the fall, and we tried to make chicken burgers. They tasted great, but they just fell apart. This time, we decided to try something different — binding agents. If you ever wondered why egg and bread crumbs were on the ingredient list for meatballs and

As promised, I have prepared, for your viewing and baking pleasure, a mid-winter pick-me-up of one of my favorite summertime flavor combinations: Lemon and blueberry. Now, as I told my mom while making these, I could eat lemon blueberry anything for days. It’s the perfect balance of tart and sweet, just like cranberry orange bread (which I

It’s peach season! Next to apples, peaches are one of my favorite fruits, and I’m MUCH better at making peach desserts than I am at making apple desserts (I promise you, I’ll nail that apple pie recipe one of these days). That being said, prepare for the best peach cobbler of your LIFE!! This peach

I know I don’t share vacation pictures, and this has absolutely nothing to do with the article, but here’s a pretty canyon from Twin Falls, Idaho. Think of it as inspiration for something to daydream about while you’re sitting in the sun, drinking some sweet smoothies! Since I just got back from vacation, there isn’t
